No support from me on this one - I tend to think it makes things look very messy and cluttered, and even putting aside my personal feelings I'm not sure there's really enough separate threads of conversation going on within topics these days to justify development time for it given the lesser activity of the forum. When the forums were at the peak of their activity (like the days where in some forum sections your thread would fall off page 50 within about 3 days), maybe it would have been a bit more useful.

I do understand this sort of style is probably more familiar to people these days, however, and that others may prefer it. I wouldn't mind as much if it was optional, and you could choose between both views (and there are some forums out there that cater for both styles) - but as a long time forum user (forums in general, not just the RS forums) I've never been a big fan of that particular layout style.

I would definitely agree with you on this point - I think this would be the biggest hurdle to overcome. At what point does the effort expended to change this go beyond the benefit?

That being said, I do think it's a great idea, I'm just similarly concerned about the timing of it, considering the... ah... let's say, "quiet" nature of the RSOF as of late ;)

I also think Louiellen was on to something with this point,

I support it if there is an option for people to go back to the current setup.

We know historically-speaking when something changes drastically a sector of the community demands for the old style.


:P
